The new Limited Release is in, and wow, it's in the running for coffee of the year, and definitely one of the most unique.

New Java Riunngunung Estate Anaerobic Natural!

Indonesia is traditionally known for earthy, one dimensional, wet-hulled coffees, but there has been a recent uptick in high quality, uniquely processed coffees that stand shoulder to shoulder with the best of any other country, and they even held their first Cup of Excellence competition this year. This coffee is harvested from a corner of the plantation that reaches near-freezing temps, which stresses the coffee plant, slows development, and produces a better bean. It's not just unusual because it's a natural process, which is difficult in wet, rainy Indonesia, but it's anaerobically processed. Carefully picked cherries are soaked with lactobacillis for 3 days in closed containers, before being removed and laid out for natural drying on raised beds for 18-21 days, then hulled, milled, and hand sorted. The quality is exceptional, the flavor astonishing: deep and chocolatey, with intense wine notes, a basket of berries, and florals that recall elderberry and rose.
Absolutely stunning, and wild.
